Summer is just around the corner and as I start booking some weekend getaways, I thought I would share some of my favorite ways to achieve that overall glow. With my busy schedule, I don’t always have time to get a professional spray tan and gave up tanning beds long ago. My new go-to’s are self tanner and body bronzers – here’s why!
Self tanning is an inexpensive and healthy alternative to baking your skin in the sun. While I love laying out, I learned at an early age what the effects of sun damage can do to my skin. Self tanning is so easy and affordable and gives you that color you’re looking for. My current favorite is the St. Tropez Express Tanning mousse. The great thing about this self tanner is that you only have to wait 1-3 hours before showering it off and I never have any streaks! I’ve also linked some of my other favorites below.
Body bronzers are a great way to achieve a natural glow without the commitment of a self tanner. Since sunscreen is so important to me, I usually mix my body bronzer with some SPF and apply all over. Body bronzer is a great way to contour specific parts of your body, similarly to how you would apply bronzer to your face. Some of my favorites are linked below.
